Serious injury update on Castleford Tigers new signing Kenny Edwards

Kenny Edwards appears to be fighting fit as the 2022 Super League pre-season gets ready to go off.

Edwards, 32, joined the Tigers for a one-year loan for the 2022 Super League season, but failed to play towards the back end of the year after receiving a ten-match ban for sticking a finger up the bum of an opponent.

The New Zealander also suffered with a serious knee injury, with an operation hoping to clear it up in time for pre-season.

Incoming Castleford head coach Lee Radford has revealed just why he has been chasing the powerful second-rower for a number of years.

“I am so excited about working with Kenny, I’ve actually tried signing him on a couple of occasions, so to get to work with him now, I’m buzzing,” Radford said.

“I love the energy he brings on a matchday, he always plays on the edge of right and wrong and has a fantastic skillset for a back-row player.

“I am sure Kenny will be a great addition to an already strong left edge.”

And, he looks to be getting back to full strength in his latest Instagram post, detailing his comeback from that severe surgery which would have kept him out of the last few months of the season anyway.

Edwards stated: “Best the knee has felt since pre-op,” which will certainly warm Castleford fans’ hearts as the excitement mounts for 2022.
